How to get update of other Microsoft product along with Windows Update

If you are using Microsoft Products along with Windows, you need not to get the updates individually of  the product separately. In fact Windows Update comes along with a feature in built to get you updates for installed MS Products.

This makes it lot easier for you to get the updates in the background and install it when its ready. These updates come under Optional Update which you can see in the Windows Update. Follow the steps to turn it on :
